Soul meets soul on lovers' lips.
~Percy Bysshe Shelley, Prometheus Unbound
Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply
not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.
A kiss that speaks volumes is seldom a first edition.
A man's kiss is his signature.
Do you remember your first kiss? It's something most of us anticipated, but whether or not it lived up to our anticipation was another thing altogether.
I know my first kiss was nothing like those I'd read about. You know the type - spine-tingling, knee-knocking, world-spinning kisses of such passion and meaning that it leaves you breathlessly in love.
Mine was more of a "what the heck?" I did not find it romantic at all. It was artless and clumsy and disappointing. Thank God there were other boys and other kisses to come - sweetly anticipated kisses that carried me away.
Researchers at the University of Albany conducted a study about kissing and found that men view kissing as a means to an end, while women use kisses to monitor the status of the relationship and commitment. Men were happy having sex without kissing, while women were not, and beyond that, women were not as willing to have sex with a man who was not a good kisser. Clearly, kissing is important here guys. Good kissing, I should add.
In the spirit of St. Valentine's Day and with genuine desire to get to know our blog readers, I ask, what was your first kiss like? Was it everything you thought it would be?
Kiss and tell, if you dare. If you're too shy for that, consider sharing the first kiss between your characters. Think of it as trading virtual Valentine's Day cards.
May all your kisses be wonderful.
